Beverley Knight - In Your Shoes

Nice to hear Rip It Up being sampled in this track by Beverley Knight. I think it works quite well. Anyone else have any thoughts on it?

Thanks for that.

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
